Arguing isn’t by any means a “goal”, but communicating is, even if the communication is heated at times. Heated communications can express aspects of our partner’s inner most needs that we can nurture, creating a stronger bond and a secure future for the marriage.
*Couples stay married because they’re happy
This is a myth. Many unhappy couples have learned to put on a happy face while being psychologically divorced. For many this is more lonely and painful than a legal divorce.
*Romantic love is what marriage is all about.
This couldn’t be further from the truth. While STAGE ONE is a magnificent time of bonding and learning, it is hormonally, the real marriage begins at STAGE THREE when the hormones have subsided and the couple is more grounded in reality. www.thestagesoflove.com.
